Cardiovascular diseases remain the most prevalent cause of deaths worldwideand their prevention requires major life-style changes using limited health-care resources.Remote decision support for cardiovascular patients seems to allow them to lead a productivelife and to minimize the costs of treatment. In this paper, risk estimation of cardiovascularpatients on the basis of collected data used in our developing decision-makingsupport system is described. The system makes use of some data mining techniqueswhich are implemented in open source software tool Weka - Waikato Environment forKnowledge Analysis. The integration of Weka with our system, a description of used riskestimation models based on data mining techniques, and experimental results showing theperformance of these models are also given.
